Keg at London City Airport. Pours pale yellow with good white head. Aromas of grassy hops and cooked corn, some malt. Tastes like a pilsner! Medium to light body, good carbonation. Finishes a bit chewy.

BeerViking (3982) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2012
Keg at the Beer House Charing Cross, gold with a thin lacy clingy head, crisp hops and a little malt nose, clean bitterness on the palate, dry hoppy finish. A good example of the style, reminiscent of Jever and the like.

FatPhil (13254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2010 Keg (Black Door, Helsinki)
5 Simple grainy aroma
2 Pale, tiny head
6- Surprisingly tasty for a key pils, but undeniably very simple.
3 Crisp palate, keggy carbonation. Hoppy finish
11 Fairly good lager. Worthy of the "Pils" moniker, and pretty tasty for something pasteurised and keg.
Rerate: Had it another time and it was awfully acidic. Dropping overall 1 for inconsistency.

Draught @ Black Door. Poured pale golden color with a thin white head. Aroma was fruity and slightly hoppy. Flavor was similar, fuity, hoppy and quite bitter. Nice bitter finish. Smooth taste, refreshing. Nice one from Meantime.
